Ashley Brinson Cusack
I have been a member at St. Thomas most of my life. I was married at St. Thomas and my children went through elementary school here. I sat on the vestry for almost 8 years while Father Mario was our priest and am currently a board member for the school. In that role I sit on the vestry as the liaison between the board and vestry. My goal has always been to see the school and church work together as we are one. I worked on hospitality for years with the hope of helping to grow the church. I am very optimistic that now is our opportunity to bring new members in and old members back. Father Tim’s welcoming message and open spirit has us on the right track.

I moved to Miami during 1986 to join the faculty of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine where I am still engaged in research related to Pediatric Infectious Diseases. Jan and I have been St. Thomas church members for over 30 years. Our daughters were baptized here by Father Tobin who also married Katie, our oldest, and Sean. Recently, he also baptized their daughter Kit, our first grandchild. St. Thomas is our home.
